A Deeper Look into Web-based Classification of Music Artists.

We extensively evaluate a Web-based approach to automatic
classification of musical artists into genres and explore several directions
for improvements. The investigated steps to advance the current ap-
proach include the finding of optimal query terms to initially retrieve a
high fraction of relevant pages from the Web and furthermore the devel-
opment of a filtering technique to identify and exclude irrelevant pages
among the retrieved ones. Since these extensions do not yield any sub-
stantial improvement, we propose an alternative approach that performs
equally well in the task of genre classification but reduces the effort to be
made to a minimum. Based on the gained insights we can conclude that
Web-based artist classification operates mainly on the basis of genre-
relevant proper nouns and thus can be considered to be a special form
of co-occurrence analysis.
